The recently announced relaunch
, from Brian Wood
and Olivier Coipel
and featuring a team made up of Storm, Jubilee, Psylocke, Rogue, Rachel Summers and Kitty Pride, has been pushed back to May
, due to a bereavement for Wood.
about the decision:
"Obviously this is a very personal matter. Pushing the launch back is the best option out of all that was discussed. An uninterrupted creative run is better than random fill-ins, and in a couple months when we're past it no one will remember the delays and the work will be forever."
Given the circumstances, fans will almost certainly be both understanding and forgiving. X-Men
#1, originally set to be released on April 17th, will now be in stores in late May.
